Banas Kantha, , Gujarat

A city in the banaskantha district in Gujarat, this is one of the cities that are growing very rapidly in this region. Palanpur is a showcase of everything that is Gujarati and it truly makes you realise this is a wonderful place to be in to discover the true Gujarat. One of the princely states of the country, this place was ruled by the Lohani clan of Afghans. Thus Palanpur bears a very rich mixture of cultures and is another one of the places in Gujarat which embraced Jainism. On the edge of the Aravalli Hills, this is a big city which contains much of history in it that the country is proud of. Palanpur was known as the flower city because of it being the highest manufacturer of Itar. This is one city that smells really nice. One of the hubs of the retal textile market, Palanpur is definitely a city on the growth curve. One of the best heritage hotel in Gujarat known as the Balaram Palace is just away 13 km from Palanpur. This is a fine place to understand and live the lives of the Lohani clan and for a few days believe oneself to be a royal. The Jessore Sloth Bear Sanctuary is another place here which has a very unique biodiversity and should definitely be visited. There are some very famous stepwells located here which is very unique to this place. The Modhera Sun temple, a gorgeous piece of architecture is also close by and should definitely be visited by everyone who comes to Palanpur. A place that will tel you about the diversity of the past, this is one wonderful city to visit.
